This evening on chess.com the epic North v South Challenge took place, over no fewer than 108 boards. On publication of the match sheet, it was clear that the North had the advantage on the grades and this was borne out by the match result North 60½-46½ South (corrected score, with 11 games decided by default and one 0-0). A monumental undertaking, which surely would not have happened OTB.
The Club had nine players in this encounter representing The South:

We also had one ex-Member in the match, now representing The North, though only a few of our current members will remember Stuart Skelsey – though you can find him in some issues of First Rank in the History section (try Volume 3 and later). Today Stuart played on Board 34, but had a default win.
